On good days I can get almost 2.5Mbits streaming ... wooo-hoo!
On one exceptional occassion I managed 3.5Mbits for almost two days before the connection went pear-shaped again !
The recently (Jan16) installed NBN FTTN box is literally JUST around the corner ... oh pleeeeease!
Setting the SNRAFTER much experimental tweaking of the SNR setting to get the best balance btween speed and stability, the sweet spot for me seems to be an SNR of 3.5 or 3.4 which gets me as close as possible to the Attainable Rate (Kbps) ... anything less than that and the RS Uncorrectable Errors start to go through the roof and the real data throughput falls away badly.
SNR tweaking via URLI found the following reference useful to copy and paste into the url rather than having to browse and enter through the UI, or when it won't let you put less than 1 in via the UI.
(obviously you use the correct IP address for your router)
6 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=96
5 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=80
4 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=64
3 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=48
2 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=32
1 – http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=16
==== following can only be entered via URL not the UI =====
0.5 - http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=8
0.3 - http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=4
0.1 - http://192.168.1.254/snr.cmd?snr=2
